  • Guilty, Especially If Proven Innocent

    Mitt Romney ^ | 11/11/2017 | By Laz A. Mataz
    It read like something straight out of "The Onion". "Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections."So spake Mitt Romney, would-be King of the Establishment Republicans.This one sentence shows a complete betrayal of all American mores and morals. In every walk of life -- law, elections, even reputations -- Americans have cherished the concept that one is innocent until proven guilty. This shows how dangerous Establishment Republicans are. They are every bit as dangerous as the most liberal Democrat.... and if given enough freedom to act, they would happily join Democrats in rounding up and killing Conservatives.Right now,...

    He’s not saying Moore should go “if” the sexual assault allegations are true. He’s telling him to get out now. Mitt Romney called on Roy Moore to step aside from the Alabama Senate race Friday, becoming one of the only Republican politicians to say, unequivocally, that Moore should go in light of accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. (TWEET-AT-LINK) On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that four women said Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. The most serious case involves Leigh Corfman, who was 14...
  • Vanity - GOP Establishment jumps way too fast on Moore.

    Funny, isn't it, that within 24 hours of the sex offense accusations upon Judge Roy Moore, running for the USA Senate seat of Jeff Sessions....The Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, John MCain, gang of GOP Establishment low life were declaring Moore guilty as sin and were screaming for his removal from the ballot, worse then any Democrat was doing the same thing. Methinks this hints heavily of a setup by the GOP Establishment. Now....I am not sure whether Moore is guilty or not. That remains to be determined as time goes by. But...for this gang of rabid dogs, led by McCain,...

  • NHS waiting lists 'to hit five million by 2021', says health chief Simon Stevens

    Sky News ^ | November 8, 2017 | By Paul Kelso, Health Correspondent
    NHS England chief executive Simon Stevens has warned five million people will be left waiting for treatment if the Government does not increase health service funding in the Budget. Mr Stevens said failure to increase funding would add one million people to the waiting list by 2021. Speaking at the NHS Providers conference in Birmingham, Mr Stevens said: "NHS England's assessment of the funding position is that the Budget for next year falls well short of what is needed to look after patients and their families at their time of greatest need. Mr Stevens said the NHS would not be...

    The Federalist ^ | November 3, 2017 | Tom Joyce
    After 42 years, it is time Utah changes up senators. When incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch was elected to his seventh term in 2012, he vowed it would be his last. Recently, however, the 83-year-old told KUTV he will run again—unless his friend Mitt Romney calls him and says he would like to run. Then Hatch would step aside. Here are seven reasons Romney should take Hatch up on that offer. 1. Gives Utah Time to Find a Long-term Solution According to The Salt Lake Tribune, 75 percent of voters said Hatch should not run again. By 2024, he would be...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | October 15, 2017 | Bernie Quigley, For The Tribune
    Should Mitt Romney run for the U.S. Senate? By all means. Indeed, Sen. Orrin Hatch should step aside. The Old Souls in the House and Senate will be taking a beating this coming year and Judge Roy Moore, newly nominated gunslinger from Alabama, will lead the charge. Possibly on horseback. For with the rise of Donald Trump to the Oval Office, America has entered a new age of Andrew Jackson. Trump has even placed a portrait of Jackson in the Oval Office to boldly indicate the dramatic shift in paradigm. But it was a long time in coming. I’d written...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi jokingly said she would rather have Mitt Romney running the country than Donald Trump. Speaking at a Q&A session hosted by The Los Angeles Times on Wednesday evening, the Democrat suggested she would now prefer to see the man she once branded a misogynist as America’s leader. “Wouldn’t be nice if he were president of the United States?” she said of Romney, prompting a round of applause from the crowd. Her comments harked back to those she made in November 2016, when she once said, “Doesn't Mitt Romney look good to us now? Oh my...

    The Hill ^ | 10/19/2017 | Rebecca Savransky
    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) quipped Wednesday that it would be nice if Mitt Romney was president. "Wouldn’t be nice if he were president of the United States?” she asked during a Los Angeles Times event, according to the Boston Globe. In 2015, Pelosi said she hoped Romney would be the GOP's presidential nominee because she didn't think he had any chance of defeating Hillary Clinton. During a 2015 interview with The Hill, Pelosi was asked if she thought Romney had any shot at defeating Clinton in 2016. “No, no. I mean, he might be a nice person —...

    "What does Russia have on Trump?", asks Nancy Pelosi. The better question is, what did Putin and Rouhani have on obama? It's June of 2001. George W. Bush is President. Bush has a meeting with Vladimir Putin and later said"I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. "I was able to get a sense of his soul. "He's a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country and I appreciate very much the frank dialogue and that's the beginning...

    Proof of “Russian Collusion” in American elections generally ignored by the mainstream media up to the present day comes in the words of Vladimir Putin to RT Russia TV in 2012. That’s when Putin said Obama was “an honest person who really wants to change much for the better.” (Reuters, Sept. 6, 2012) Another prominent Russian was also on the public record for urging Americans to vote Obama back in the presidential race of 2012.

    How many decisive rejections can a veteran national political figure experience at the hands of voters before that politician takes the hint and walks off into the sunset with some small measure of dignity still intact?Willard “Mitt” Romney seems intent on testing the limits of that proposition by floating the story with friends in the conservative media that he’s toying with the idea of running for the U.S. Senate seat of octogenarian Orrin Hatch of Utah, who is expected to announce his decision to decline a run for yet another term next year. Evidently, Romney’s last electoral humiliation—the embarrassing rout...

    Hotair ^ | 09/12/2017 | AllahPundit
    Alternate headline: “Orrin Hatch must retire.” And there’s a fair chance that he will! He’s 83 and said in March that he’d be more inclined to step down if he could get a “really outstanding person” to run for his seat. When asked if he had anyone in mind, he said “Mitt Romney would be perfect.” That lit the fuse on RomneyWatch 2018, leading to reports that Romney was thinking about it and had even spoken to Mitch McConnell about running. But then in May the speculation seemed to fizzle: Hatch himself claimed that Romney told him he wouldn’t...

    Utah Policy ^ | September 11, 2017 | Bryan Schott
    Sources tell UtahPolicy.com that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is preparing to run for Senate in 2018 if Sen. Orrin Hatch decides to retire. Sources close to Romney say the two-time presidential candidate will jump into the 2018 Utah Senate scrum if Hatch opts not to. So far, Hatch has not made up his mind as to whether he'll run for an eighth term in 2018. He has previously said he was planning on running as long as his and his wife's health holds up. Dave Hansen, a longtime political advisor to Hatch, told UtahPolicy.com last month that he didn't...

    Catalyst ^ | Spring 2017 Issue | Mike Davis
    This is a skeptical interrogation of the widely-accepted belief that white working-class voters elected Trump. A careful analysis of Rust Belt counties that voted for Obama in 2012 demonstrates a strong correlation between recent plant closures and the collapse of the Clinton vote, but shows only a limited movement toward Trump. Several hundred thousand white, blue-collar Obama voters, at most, voted for Trump’s vision of fair trade and reindustrialization, not the millions usually invoked. The mogul’s real election “miracle” was retaining the Romney vote and avoiding the widely predicted defections of Republican women and conservative minorities. He achieved this surprising...

    Townhall.com ^ | July 21, 2017 | Michael Barone
    Fifty years ago this weekend, a deadly urban riot began in Detroit. It started around 3:30 a.m., when police arrested 85 patrons of a blind pig -- an illegal after-hours bar -- in the midst of an all-black neighborhood that had been all-white 15 or 20 years before. The statistics are horrifying. Rioting went on for six nights, with some 2,500 stores looted and burnt, some 400 families displaced and property damage was estimated around $300 million in 2017 dollars. Forty-three people, many of them innocent bystanders, were killed. More than 1,000 people were wounded. The reality was even more...

    Mitt Romney called on President Donald Trump Friday to apologize for his comments about Charlottesville, Virginia, saying the President’s remarks this week “caused racists to rejoice.” “The potential consequences are severe in the extreme,” Romney wrote in a Facebook post. “Accordingly, the president must take remedial action in the extreme. He should address the American people, acknowledge that he was wrong, apologize.” He said that Trump’s remarks — in which he blamed “both sides” for inciting violence, an equivocation between neo-Nazis and those protesting them — had a hurtful impact on the nation. “Whether he intended to or not, what...
